I bought and painted these a long time ago

I think they're Calpe but might be Elite?

Hi, yes they are Calpe. Nice looking figures.

I am not so sure. The typical gazing skywards of some made me doubt anything but Elite. A great range, but so many are what I have described as "watching for Stukas".

Checking against their gallery on line, I think Elite. Maybe a mixture, some Calpe?

Changed my mind. Elite throughout……….convinced now

Another vote for Elite. Too slim for Calpe. I have some of the Elite at home and would have to check but based upon my view -- Elite.

I agree with deadhead, also too thin for Calpe, and agree with the pose…….I'm going with Elite

I believe I heard, a few years ago, that the (now Calpe sculptor owner) did some work for Peter of Elite?

I agree they are Elite.
Check the close up shots from Elite Miniatures Australia.

I am humbled. I even compared to a calpe figure. A good thing to know is that both could mix well into each Other.

45th Div, I too was confused. Looking at them on my phone I thought they were Calpe. But when I looked again on my laptop, they are slightly different. Had to fond the Elite close ups to confirm. They would easily mix with Calpe.

Cheers,
Thomas
